Bombers statement on quarterback Matt Nichols

WINNIPEG, MB., September 26, 2019 –   Winnipeg Blue Bombers Head Coach Mike O’Shea has issued the following statement on quarterback Matt Nichols:

“Matt Nichols sustained a significant shoulder injury in Week 10 from which he has been diligently rehabbing to try and avoid season-ending surgery and return to the playing field. After rehabbing conservatively for a period of six weeks, it was determined by the medical team that surgery would be required and a return to the field this season would not be possible. Nichols underwent successful surgery this afternoon.”
